Intra-Spec is a small but prolific design firm, located in Marina Del Rey, California. Our Owner and Principal Designer, Susan Caruso, has been personally involved in each project contracted to Intra-Spec, Inc. since its founding in 1990.

With over 20 years of Hospitality Design experience creating exciting hotel and restaurant interiors in many parts of the world, we look at each new property as a unique challenge and opportunity. We are dedicated to maintaining a close, direct working relationship with our Client, and to creating a sophisticated design without overstepping the budgetary parameters of the project.

Always committed to meeting our Client’s prescribed schedule and individual needs, we pride ourselves in providing comprehensive coordination and documentation for each project we embark upon, from conceptualization to installation.

We have collaborated with many clients through the years including Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants, Cornerstone Real Estate Advisers, Destination Hotels and Resorts, CapStar Hotel Company, McCaffery Interests, and Gemstone Resorts International, LLC.

Recent large scale projects include full renovations of the famed Algonquin Hotel in New York City, the Cypress Hotel in Cupertino, CA and three Hotel Monaco’s in Denver, Salt Lake City and Chicago. We are currently working on renovations at the Hotel Durant in Berkeley, CA and the Mosaic Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA.
